October 4 & 5
Stitch House Urban SEW Weekend!
Saturday October 4, 10am-3pm. $125.
People are often surprised to learn they can make their own leggings, but guess what? YOU CAN! And you don’t even need a serger to sew with knits. Guest sewing instructor Cal Patch will show you how to draft a pattern for this wardrobe essential, based on your own measurements. Then we’ll stitch up a first draft fit sample, adjust our patterns if necessary, and proceed to make a pair of real-live leggings. You’ll never buy them off the rack again! Please have at least advanced-beginner sewing skills, with a few simple projects under your belt. Class includes pattern and fabric.
Sunday October 5, 10am-3pm. $125.
Here’s your chance to make your own custom dress pattern with guest instructor Cal Patch! In this one-day class, you will learn how to take your measurements and use them to draft a pattern for a simple sleeveless shift dress. Then we’ll make “muslins” (fit samples) from our patterns, and have a group fitting session in which everyone will benefit from seeing various fit issues and how to correct them. Based on this, you’ll make corrections to your pattern, and we will discuss fabric and styling options and construction techniques, so that at the end of class you are armed with all you need to embark on your finished dress project! Please have (at least) beginner-level sewing skills. (Note: only a pattern and muslin will be made in this class, not a finished dress.)All materials are included.
Sign up for Saturday and Sunday sessions for $225
